When you've seen enough of what works and what doesn't. When you know inside that there is more and a better way of doing you. When nobody else is going to forgive you for you. When the avenues of blame are dried up.
There is nowhere else to turn. There is only you, within you.
There's a hunger to awaken when you're at a breaking point.
There's a desire to be seen but much stronger is the desire to see.
People don't randomly wake up; their soul reaches its boiling point. Before that point, to an observer, the waters were calm. And just when you begin to boil, others see your process and it looks messy. The system is in a highly energized state of constant transformation.
"All things transform through fire" is an ancient alchemical saying. Your spirit is no different. When its mechanism of soul comes to a rolling boil, the real work can begin. Over that boiling pot, you can bring all manner of things through the alchemical processes required for self-mastery. Until one day you are empty. All the waters are burned off and you are free.
Until then, when your soul comes to a boil, don't turn down the heat.
Instead, embrace the boiling process itself and give yourself to the flame so you may one day realize you are it. You are the one thing that makes this whole process go; you are the process and you are the result.
You are who you were in the beginning, before you forgot; yet you're also the one who will remember and then grow into more than you ever were.
And this is the Mystery.
- Jordan Bain
Last week, an old client told me that since she received Life Activation (a private session) three years ago, she’s been receiving all the teachings of the Mystery School, without taking any classes. Although she does not know the content of those classes, she is sure she is receiving them directly from her spirit guides.
This is not so. Or it is partially so. The mysteries open in two primary phases.
We do have spirit guides, who are always working with us. While many humans might largely ignore such forms of non-physical life, they are quite real and are always guiding all human beings. I am not referring to mediumship here (communication with deceased humans), but rather interaction with beings of light who have never been born into a physical body.
Spiritual, non-physical beings teach humans all the time. In fact, we are spiritual beings ourselves. But here in this physical experience of having a body, we become very limited, and often forget much of what we know. We become focused on this physical life and its wants and needs.
Awakening is a unique process in which a human being begins a process of remembering who they truly are.
Here are the two main phases of awakening to the mysteries of life:
2) Physical Initiation
Self-Initiation happens when a person, of their own experience and free will, realizes something essential: that they are an eternal being, that there is a greater source of light in the universe, that they wish to serve that greater light, that service must start with knowing themselves, and that they are going to need help for this long journey ahead.
With this humility and simple awareness, a person asks the universe for help, and a door opens for that individual. This is Self-Initiation.
Self-Initiation is often born out of hardship, though not always. Self-Initiation gives a person a certain level of authority to work with the light, to know themselves better, to develop insight and awareness, and even to do healing work and teaching work for/with other people.
For some people, self-initiation seems to be enough for them. It is an acceleration of their life, a commitment to their spirituality, and a decision to live by spiritual principles as best they are able to perceive them.
For others, somewhere along their path of self-initiation, they ask to go to the next level.
With this request, they may eventually run into one of the 7 ancient Mystery School lineages. The 7 ancient lineages have the spiritual authority (a very difficult concept for the human ego, which revolts at such concepts) to physically initiate a person.
For thousands and thousands of years, the 7 ancient lineages have held, taught, and protected the mysteries for true seekers to enter into if they choose. A true seeker genuinely desires to know who they are, and has the humility to know that there is a lot they don’t know, so they had better ask. “Ask, and you shall receive; Knock, and it shall be opened unto you.”
These 7 lineages go back to the first humans, long before recorded history as we know it, and have been “handed down”, teacher-to-student, in-person, in an unbroken succession of oral tradition since the beginning of humankind. They are protected in ways that are impossible to understand, for they are designed to be transmitted for all time, and available to those who truly desire to know themselves.
The true Mysteries, unfortunately for us as humans, do not teach themselves through spirit guides without physical lineage instruction. It's a very alluring concept to the ego, and seems so progressive and new paradigm: that everything can now be learned directly from spirit, and ancient keys from the dawn of humanity must be outdated or outmoded. Trust me. I banged on those doors of the universe for years, to no avail. Wishing and praying that the universe teach me directly everything I needed to know. I have seen countless others try to pry the gates of knowledge open with their requests; neither of these suffice until a person is willing to humble themselves and ask for physical initiation from a human being who carries the responsibility of initiation.
Perhaps this goes without saying, but I will say it because it comes up for many people reading this: my words here might easily appear arrogant to a wide range of people for a whole host of reasons. But consider this: there is no real way to put what I am communicating here into words. Some will be able to feel it and are already humble enough to ask in their hearts. Others might simply pass this by and ignore it. Some still will be triggered by such claims and demand to see proof, or attempt to offer their own evidence to the contrary. That is fine. This lineage has stood the test of time since the original state of Paradise, and will continue to do so for a very long time to come. This article is not designed to stimulate debate or mental processing. It's written to be felt, resonated with, and then discarded if it doesn't work for you.
Of those ancient 7 lineages, there is only one currently open to the public. This is the lineage which was codified for modern times by King Salomon 3,000 years ago is now called the Modern Mystery School. There have been many branches off of this lineage, far too numerous to list here, including the major religions of the world, many traditions which have taken parts of lineage and presumed have the big picture…but the offshoots of this work are as branches broken off a tree and placed in a vase with water. They are pretty and even functional at first, but eventually lose their life force and become purely symbolic, as they are cut off from the ground which nourishes them.
Why does this matter?
Two simple concepts for an infinite well of knowledge:
(1) Unbroken Lineage.
(2) Physical Initiation.
Ten basic points which characterize this work:
(1) True lineage is physical, which is needed to ground eternal beings (that means you!) into this physical lifetime (that means your body, which is just a vehicle for you).
(2) True lineage has keys that were entrusted to humans from the first times, and have never been lost, changed, or distorted to accommodate human egos. Impossible to truly grasp in the mind, impossible to write about. But real nonetheless.
(3) True lineage empowers you, and requires you to discover and take responsibility for the full range of your choices and the depths and heights of your failures and successes.
(4) True lineage will never let you down. It will always work, and always serve you. It is not from humans and is not based on human limitations (again, impossible to grasp in the mind, therefore ego will revolt here to maintain its reality picture). True lineage will show you and mirror to you where you let yourself down.
(5) True lineage will lead to inner peace and fulfillment beyond what you have previously ever been able to imagine and dream up for yourself.
(6) True lineage will help you discover not only who you are personally, but also how you fit into the bigger picture of humanity.
(7) True lineage is required to wield all the powers of the universe in this physical body.
(8) True lineage is a choice and only presents itself to those who are ready. Those who are not ready will either ignore, deny, or ridicule lineage and those who carry it. And it is not carried as a badge of honor, but as a profound responsibility.
(9) True lineage undermines all the structures your negative ego has ever built, and, if carried far enough, will lead to the destruction of your old life, and a rebirth of a new life. In this new life, you will know yourself and you will find joy. This may take many years (perhaps 7-10), but it will be the most worthwhile thing you could imagine.
(10) Because of all of these factors, initiation into a true lineage is the hardest thing you have ever done, and will challenge your ego structures on all levels. Your self-concept will undergo continuous change for the rest of your life, if you take this work seriously. And you will come into your highest destiny if you can stick with it.
If all of this sounds like something you’ve been asking for, amazing. There’s a introduction/meditation/presentation on the first several stages of Mystery School Initiation this Saturday, February 13th, @ 11am-3pm. Use this link to register:
Can't make it Saturday? No worries. I do introductions to Mystery School every few weeks. Check my website calendar page (HealingBoston.com/calendar), or download our mobile app: search you app store for "healing boston". Maybe see you soon!
I created this chart recently based on a conversation with a client going through a "hell of a time" in her personal life journey. I snapped a photo of the whiteboard and worked with my graphic designer to make this all sexy.
Basically we all go through the first few phases of this chart. Most people do not make it through all the phases to true freedom and self-knowledge.
The true purpose of Mystery School is to provide a proven system for bringing individuals all the way through all phases, in a systematic, alchemical pattern which yields true and permanent transformation.
The cycle of ownership in the chart above, near the bottom of the curve, is a major stumbling block for people before they find the Mystery School. When not reflected upon accurately, it is more like the cycle of addiction and beating oneself up. The addictive cycle does not lead to new and better uses of personal energy.
All results are belong to the client/student and their personal desire and efforts to cultivate their awareness and make new choices -- nobody else can do this work for you. The tools and the patterns are provided through the work offered in the Mystery School. Your own life is the greatest teacher -- so we accelerate the learning curves in the school of life so you can gain access to more of the higher frequencies of joy which are always available to you, in every moment.
Normal humans generally remain unaware of their choices and how their choices impact their emotional experience of life. Many people are relatively numb to their emotional experience of life. Mystery School Activations, Healings, Initiations, and Kabbalah awaken the senses and awareness of the individual so they can become more conscious of how much choice they really have, and hopefully, make new and better choices which will lead them on a path of greater JOY and fulfillment in everything they do. This is true alchemy.
Study and meditate on this chart, and I look forward to your questions. I offer a free phone consultation and you can learn more at my main page, healingboston.com.
Happy New Year! May it be a year of joy, new awareness, and more connection to your life purpose.
Recently, a client stood in the doorway of my office on her way out of a session. We were discussing briefly her experience, and things happening in her life.
We had done several sessions together over the previous half a year, and things were changing in really positive directions for her: more confidence, less self-doubt, more independence and clarity in relationships, a greater sense of her own self-worth, and more. Encouraging results from just two sessions over five months!
She paused and asked me, "is this normal?"
I get this question all the time. Perhaps at almost every other session, and many of the meditation classes I offer. It's such a natural curiosity: we want to feel that our intangible, invisible experience which seems so profound to us is something relatable, something safe, and something good.
I responded that in one sense, YES! Her experience of questioning her reality, her perceptions, and her own "story" which had held her back in the past --- these were all normal side effects of doing a few healing sessions. But what is NOT normal about the big picture here is that to be interested in such changes, a person has to be in a process of awakening.
Somebody who is ASLEEP is not going to seek out healing sessions. They are not going to be inspired to learn meditation. The majority of humanity lives in slumber, and this is neither bad nor good. It just is.
Awakening is a strange thing. It is curious and unpredictable when viewed from our human perspective. It seems to follow rules beyond our comprehension, but it also seems to reward us with a deeper sense of knowing, connection, and fulfillment which we know we did not have before.
When we are asleep, and have not experienced awakening, the world is unquestioned. Our thoughts generally dwell in a single dimension that is like a faint daydream in comparison with the awakened senses and awakened mind.
When we are asleep, our actions seem predetermined, programmed, and predictable. We know the story and the characters of our life, and we watch the same movie over and over again. Life goes on and on and if we don't wake up, one day we grow old and die without ever noticing the range of choices we really had.
Without attaching any judgment to that kind of a life path, let's look at something quite different: a life where for some unknown reason, a person chooses to wake up. How is this even possible?
A life of somebody who is waking up has a very different flavor to it. It becomes increasingly multidimensional, as the individual begins to realize they are composed of much more than this earthly flesh and monkey mind.
Psychic awareness and experiences of a world of energy begin to take shape, often gradually and in fits and starts.
Connection with the natural forces of the world begins on a level of pure consciousness. The world becomes more alive.
You begin to know there are layers upon layers of possibilities to how you could choose to be, think, feel and act.
Along the path of awakening, many teachers come into your life to show you and remind you of what you have always been and known within yourself. These teachers take many forms -- relationships, work situations, friends, instructors, pets, books, seminars, setbacks, gifts, challenges and much more.
Eventually, if you don't fall off the path of awakening by getting disillusioned that your newfound awareness has not yet created enlightenment, you begin to mature spiritually and deepen your curiosity of how this whole awakening journey actually operates.
It is at this crucial juncture that you may encounter a true Mystery School. If you choose to step forward on the path of initiation, you plant yourself firmly in the gateway for higher knowing, and in so doing, nothing will ever be the same. If you do encounter a true Mystery School at this point in your awakening, chances are it has something to offer you whether you believe it or not.
Before physical initiation into a true mystery school, awakening is essentially haphazard. It can be beautiful, but some people want a more reliable, accelerated, proven path.
As a Mystery School initiate, if you follow the path of progression and use the ancient tools you are handed down -- tools which have been used since the beginning of humans on this planet -- you come to know who you really are.
As you change yourself through true self-knowledge, you will become empowered to make profound change on planet Earth.
If this inspires you, perhaps Mystery School could be of service in your awakening.
Happy New Year! It's been an honor serving and being on this journey this past year, and I want to thank you for reading, for coming to Friday night meditations, healing sessions, or perhaps even Initiation and more!
You are amazing! I am so excited for this upcoming year!
As you prepare for 2015, I have two questions for you:
1) What is next for you to create or heal in your life?
2) What do you need to succeed with your goals in 2015?
Think about that, and at the end of this blog, I'd love to hear your responses. Really. My passion is helping people live their higher purpose, and this happens in tangible steps. I'm honored that you trust me enough to share your goals with me. You can leave them in the comments, or you can email me directly via the contact form on my main page.
While you're coming up with your answers, I'd like to share a bit of my own story...
At the beginning of 2006, I was struggling.
I had built a small business that was floundering. I was having health challenges from unresolved issues that were coming to the surface as I tried to serve others.
I'd experienced a year of success, given my best, and then I was thrown back into myself by forces I didn't understand.
I sensed there was a code inside of me that would help me unlock my inner resources and thrive. But I was having challenges cracking that code.
Challenges happen to all of us. They have the potential to shape our character into truly good human beings...or they can thwart our best efforts to be ourselves.
Our choices make the difference. The essence of the problem in making good choices? There's a lot we don't know about ourselves!
This means we make the same subconscious choices over and over again, without knowing how to change.
There is an essential roadmap, a blueprint of self-knowledge, which can change all of this and empower us to create our destiny.
This roadmap, called the Tree of Life, makes the subconscious CONSCIOUS, and empowers you to make changes and re-program YOURSELF to be more YOU.
With Universal Kabbalah, you will enter into and spend 10 months in your own Tree of Life. You unlock each of the 10 sacred areas of your Tree in an ancient alchemical formula for success. This is a science of the soul, which we do not deviate from. Therefore we can guarantee transformation if you stick with the process.
When I began Universal Kabbalah in 2006, it was like all the missing puzzle pieces of my subconscious mind began to resolve themselves.
During this incredible, life-changing journey, the picture of who I really was started to come into focus. This was amazing and empowering!
Within several months of finishing Kabbalah, for the first time in my life, I felt truly whole. I saw what I needed to do and where I needed to go to accomplish what I had always wanted!
By the end of these 10 months, you will go beyond what you imagined you could achieve in your personal, relational, and professional life.
When you begin the 10-month Universal Kabbalah journey this March (see below) you will establish a tangible, measurable result with which to gauge your progress and growth with the Tree of Life.
By unleashing and directing the incredible power of the forces within your Tree of Life, you will be able to make changes that have stumped you or held you back in the past.
So now, I'd love to hear your answers: As you prepare for 2015, I have two questions for you:
1) What is next for you to create or heal in your life?
2) What do you need to succeed with your goals in 2015?
Please reply and let me know your answers. There are many, many tools I have which can serve you!
Here's to an amazing 2015!
Love and service,
When I first did Empower Thyself Initiation in 2005, my mind had no idea what I was getting into. But I knew in my heart that after much searching and prayer, I had finally found a vehicle to fully share my life purpose all in one place. I heard an interesting teaching: "The Mind is polluted." Whatever!
After my Empower Thyself / Adept Initiation in 2005, I continued to be my own obstacle until 2010. I was shown by the school of hard knocks that it's really true what we teach in Mystery School: THE MIND IS POLLUTED. For those five years, I gave myself the luxury of back-seat judgment, thinking privately:
"Other people's minds are polluted, but mine is pretty much ok." RIGHT...
In 2010, I committed to use this Mystery School as an exclusive means to serve others for one simple reason:
I found that this lineage of King Salomon ALWAYS empowered and NEVER enabled people. No gurus. No teachers. We teach that YOU are GOD (GOD-GODDESS by whatever name you like), or perhaps a GOD in Training. That was a bit much for me at first. Too much responsibility. I'd rather just pretend be a human.
I seem to like to do things the hard way.
Life. It's really simple. We all have a blueprint. We all signed a contract with that universal/greater aspect of GOD millions of years ago. We come to this planet with a very specific mission, to experience JOY in our unique blueprint.
My mind got in the way of this mission. I had to learn to live in JOY, because nothing else felt right. This is the new paradigm, living in joy always.
It turns out that everything I could conceive of needing on my path of joy, this lineage already gathered together 3,000 years ago into one perfect system! It works for everyone who uses the simple rituals, meditation, and prayer daily, receives healing work when they need it, and moves forward when they hear the inner call. Life is about progress.
Progress as an initiate means more layers of your psyche are revealed. This is not easy. Negative ego easily rationalizes its way to the driver's seat of the mind. Left unchecked, the mind will grow weeds. Those weeds will overtake your garden and steal your light.
As an Adept / 1st step initiate, your mind works 10x more powerfully. As a Healer / 2nd step initiate, it's 100x. You've committed to GOD to get more real with yourself so you can fulfill your purpose.
Initiation is a rebirth, and your old identity prior to initiation is gone. When the initiation sword descends on your shoulders and head, you change, even though at that time you do not understand fully how much changes. Your Body, Emotions, and Mind must become reflections of your higher self.
Before Initiation, your Masks provided safety. After initiation, your Masks become the problem.
You might notice old negative habits surfacing after initiation. WHY? Light flows more freely in you. How much of your life is run by your subconscious mind? Your subconscious mind is the foundation of your Masks. Subconscious must be made conscious. Initiation gives you the structure, teachings, and tools to remove your Masks.
Underneath your Masks, there is eternal JOY. Keep digging!
When the ego is taking you out you will not know it is happening, unless you meditate. Why? The ego never conceives of itself as a real being -- it projects the feelings of the real being (YOU) onto external people and things. In this way it hopes to keep you distracted for just a little bit longer. And tomorrow? Just a little bit longer. How many "tomorrows" will you allow the ego to overtake? Just a little bit longer. Until you meditate and inquire within for all your answers, you cannot say to your ego, "The buck stops here, buddy," and take responsibility as a real being.
In 2005, I entered the school of life's university program.
For years I had been asking to know myself. I did not fit in with society. I had gone to college, and studied everything and nothing. I had given up on being "normal" a few years earlier.
I had spent my teenage and college years in my spare time studying everything about personal and spiritual development I could find. I had studied many forms of healing and opened a successful private healing practice in 2004.
Nothing was really getting me or my clients the results I had heard about: unconditional love, fulfillment, peace of mind, joy, and practical life changes.
Most things I'd studied were easily used to avoid my real issues.
I was no longer satisfied by SOMEBODY ELSE'S experiences of enlightenment, peace, or fulfillment. I desired these experiences for myself. Despite years of meditation, healing, and training, I still lacked a solid foundation. I had begun at age 11, and I was now 25. I wanted a system that WORKED!
So I finally asked the universe to reveal to me my next steps, with humility and open-mindedness...
Watch this 2-minute video about the first two steps I discovered.
Some questions to ask yourself in meditation and journal about:
